Rudyard Kipling's short story "Toomai of the Elephants" comes to life in this exciting little movie from Sir Alexander Korda.
The original material has been embroidered upon, but the changes from Kipling, who had died in 1936, actually give the slight tale more punch without destroying its integrity.
Location shooting, personally granted by the Maharaja of Mysore on his private lands, gives a veracity to the film which no studio back lot could equal.
In the title role, 13 year old, Sabu Dastagir in his film debut plays a young Elephant Boy who dreams of becoming a hunter like his father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

Subject: Charming, old fashioned film about a boy and the elephant he loves

This is simply a wonderful film which should be on any good "Best Films at the Internet Archive" list.

There are many astonishing scenes of elephants in India, and the little boy, Sabu, is charming.

Subject: Good movie
Saw this about three times, when it first came out I was enthralled with it. Sabu had me walking and riding along with him every inch of the way. Nice story, put a dog in place of the elephant, and you have a boy and his dog. Take a look at it, I think you will probably enjoy it.
